Success Is a Journey
By Frank Purdy
Have you ever heard that “Success is a journey, not a destination” ?
It is very important to have a law of life to base your life on. A law of life that means a lot to me is; Success is a journey, not a destination. It means that what matters is not necessarily where you are at the end, but what you accomplish while you are trying along the way. It means that no matter what, as long as you try, you can never fail. It means you can learn from your mistakes and continue on the next journey a little wiser.
One person I believe that shares my law of life is Mark McGwire. He didn’t get caught up in the home-run chase in the 1998 season, but instead played every game in the best way he could. And, most of the time, he helped his team. He didn’t just go out there and hit home runs because he wanted to be ahead in the end, but because he wanted to make it a good season for his teammates and him.
I also think the 1999-2000 St. Louis Rams as a whole are utilizing my law of life. They play every game with their full potential instead of letting a few winning games go to their heads. They stay focused on playing in the Super Bowl. They know that even if they don’t go journey. Even though they lost some games, they didn’t give up.
It doesn’t matter if you do not have the ability to be on top in the end, to win the championship; all that matters is that you worked hard the whole time. There are a few people in the world who already understand what it means. They understand that success is a journey, not a destination. But wouldn’t it be a much better world if everyone did, if everyone would realize that someone will win and someone will lose, but what’s important is that both sides need to try their best? After all, it’s not who wins or loses, but how well you play the game, and I hope I have applied this in my own life.
